NLE Choppa may be a young rapper, but he is a real one that respects the art form, and he literally gave Lil Wayne flowers along with a note of appreciation at a video shoot.
NLE posted clips from his video shoot for the song “Ain’t Gonna Answer,” featuring Lil Wayne, and he posted video footage of him giving Lil Wayne flowers and telling him how much he means to him as an artist.
The interaction went as follows:
NLE: First and foremost, I feel like accolades never define an artist, but me personally I feel like it’s supposed to be way more accolades your way.
Um, I feel like it shouldn’t be to the point and time to where you just receive an accolade, you know, like, it was a few days ago when you won an award.
So man, I just wanted to present my own accolade physically giving you flowers and a note to let you know how much you inspire me and impacted my life, man.
Lil Wayne: Preciate it, predicate it!…
Ah man, you a good real person for real.
Ah y’all! Whoever, whatever cameras if y’all watching be like this guy, man!…
Be like this guy!
He’s a good guy man, for real.
I do this a lot. I’m on video sets a lot, new artist, old artist, this doesn’t happen.
This doesn’t happen.
He’s a great guy!
As Wayne mentioned this interaction is rare, and NLE Choppa is a good guy.
This was a great share.

The note that NLE gave to Wayne reads:
I simply wanted to physically gift you these flowers to symbolize my appreciation for you as an artist, icon, and more importantly an inspiration. Growing up I had 3 favorites Kobe, 2 Pac, and the one and only Dwayne Carter!!! I pray this is just the beginning to a big brother, lil brother relationship. With that being said I want to say THANK YOU, wholeheartedly! Awards couldn’t even amount to how many lives you have changed and inspired. I am proud to be a part of both forever grateful.
Sincerely, NLE Choppa!
Favorite Song: God Bless America.
NLE’s video “Ain’t Gonna Answer” featuring Lil Wayne is slated to be released on February 24.
